The Low-luminosity Galaxy Population in the NGC 5044 Group
Detailed surface photometry for 79 (mostly dwarf) galaxies in the NGC 5044 Group area is analysed, revealing the existence of different morphologies among objects originally classified as early-type
Polarization angular spectra of Galactic synchrotron emission on arcminute scales
We study the angular power spectra of the polarized component of the Galactic synchrotron emission in the 28 deg2 test region of the Southern Galactic Plane Survey at 1.4 GHz. These data were
Tracing Star Formation in Cool Core Clusters with GALEX
We present recent results from a GALEX investigation of star formation in 16 cooling core clusters of galaxies, selected to span a broad range in both redshift and central cooling time. Initial
Wide Area X‐ray Surveys for AGN and Starburst Galaxies
While often the point sources in X‐ray surveys are dominated by AGN, with the high sensitivity of modern X‐ray telescopes such as Chandra and XMM‐Newton normal/starburst galaxies are also being
Precise surface gravitites of A-type stars from Asteroseismology
δ Sct are one of the most abundant pulsating stars in our Galaxy. In addition, they have moderate to fast rotations and periods of several hours. That makes them the suitable targets for studying the
Cluster temperature profiles and Sunyaev–Zeldovich observations
Galaxy clusters are not isothermal, and the radial temperature dependence will affect the cluster parameters derived through the observation of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect. We show that the
Star formation and mass assembly in high-redshift galaxies
Aims. The goal of this work is to infer the star formation properties and the mass assembly process of high redshift (0.3 ≤ z 0.3, the star formation rate is correlated well with stellar mass, and
Theoretical and observational studies of the central engines of active galactic nuclei
In Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) the luminosity is so intense that the effect of radiation pressure on a particle may exceed the gravitational attraction. It was shown that when such luminosities are
GOALS: The Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG Survey
The Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG Survey (GOALS ) combines data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope, Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope (HST), and Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX)
EROS: a Galactic Microlensing Odyssey
The EROS microlensing survey has monitored nearly 100 million stars for seven years, to search for halo brown dwarfs and compact objects in the Galactic disk. In this paper, we review the various
